The Christmas Story . . .

. . . as written and performed by the children of St. Pauls Church in Auckland, New Zealand.



It's a refreshing (and perceptive!) take on the old, old narrative. And as they say at the end of the credits, it's "based on a true story" LOL! My favourite part is the animal poop.

I saw this video last year on Jim's blog, Ocean Breezes -- thanks, buddy! I tucked it away to use this year on my own blog.

Christmas blessings to you all!

Only sheep ... very New Zealand. I liked the party at the end. I think glowsticks are cool.

If only the story was told this well at church! And then there was a party too!

Those costumes are amazing and adorable. I love the sheep the best (something New Zealand knows a thing or two about) and the Star.

Ok, I wasn't enthralled by the poop, but I loved the little sheep and the lightsticks. This is wonderful. Thanks for sharing it.
